Aground Zero voxel colony sim and base building RPG game for Linux and Windows PC hits Early Access. Thanks to the imaginative team at Fancy Fish Games for bringing this adventure to life. Available now via Steam Early Access with 85% Positive reviews.

Fancy Fish has just rolled out their latest project, Aground Zero, the voxel colony sim. This isn’t just another typical release; it’s a unique base building RPG that’s diving into Early Access for around a year.

The world as we know it has crumbled. You find yourself deep underground, with nothing but isolation and a friendly AI companion for company. It’s a scenario straight out of a sci-fi flick, but here’s the twist – it’s up to you to claw your way back to the surface. You’ll be mining, building, and scraping together a survival strategy. But that’s not all. There’s a glimmer of hope in this bleak world – other survivors are out there, waiting for you to find them.

The journey from being stranded in this subterranean nightmare to establishing your own underground base is just the beginning. You’ll be piecing together vehicles, rescuing fellow survivors, and eventually, making your way to the surface. But what awaits you there? That’s the big question.

Fancy Fish isn’t just stopping at the voxel colony sim release, they have big plans for Aground Zero. Think along the lines of crafting the first spaceship, exploring new areas, and even constructing a moon base. It’s clear they’re not just thinking big; they’re thinking cosmic.

Now, here’s where it gets even more interesting. This underground world isn’t just about mining and building. You’re not alone down there. And I’m not just talking about other survivors. Creatures are lurking in the depths, the kind that don’t belong on Earth. It adds an exciting, albeit slightly chilling, twist to your quest.

But fear not, the AI companion is not just a bundle of code. It’s your guide, your helper, and in these dire times, perhaps even your savior. All it needs is a bit of assistance from you, the human touch, to steer humanity towards safety.

Aground Zero is more than just a solitary voxel colony sim journey. It’s got a local split-screen multiplayer option, but here’s the catch – only one player can use the keyboard and mouse. Everyone else? You’re going to need a controller. And while it supports up to four players, everyone can opt for controllers if that’s more your style.

This game isn’t just a sequel or a rehash. It’s a 3D spinoff of the wildly successful Aground (2020), known for its engaging pixel-art mining and crafting gameplay. If you haven’t played the original, no worries, jumping into Aground Zero requires no prior knowledge of the voxel colony sim. It’s a standalone experience, set during the same events but with its own unique twist.

Aground Zero is shaping up to be an exhilarating, engaging, and utterly unique voxel colony sim. Whether you’re a seasoned Linux gamer or just looking for your next big adventure, this is one journey you won’t want to miss. Available now via Steam Early Access. Priced at $19.99 USD / £16.75 / 19,50€. Along with support for Linux and Windows PC.
